A project 3 years in the making will be exhibited for 4 days only at Ukraine’s premier fine art gallery. Luc Chenier’s textured canvasses are an innovative demonstration of UNITY, which engage Ukraine’s blue and yellow colours to reinvent great international flags.
“I want to show how connected Ukraine truly is to so many nations across the world, and how much it contributes, not just through its diaspora, but through a myriad economic, cultural, and political ways”,- said artist Luc Chenier, Canadian citizen,and long-term resident and deep compatriot of Ukraine.
Luc Chenier is the Founder of TITANIUM Presentations, the agency behind the much-publicized UKRAINE. OPEN FOR U video, which garnered several million views online and is still being used by Ukraine to promote itself on trade and cultural missions. He is currently the CEO of Kyiv Post. Luc is a Canadian citizen who has spent most of the last 20 years living in Kyiv. Born in Alexandria, Canada, Chénier studied graphic design in St. Lawrence College in Ontario. Alongside his extensive experience in advertising, marketing, and public relations, painting has been his longstanding creative pursuit.
The UNITED exhibition will consist of 12 nations in total and is supported by several embassies such as Canada, Australia, Lithuania, Great Britain, Turkey, Germany, and many others. Part of the sale proceeds will be donated to a local charity of the artists choice which support Ukraine. The paintings were created in acrylic medium in dimensions of 60 X 120 cm.
The exhibition is planned to continue later this year in Toronto, Canada, Chicago and New York, USA, as well as other cities in Europe yet to be confirmed.
The exhibition runs from October 20th-23rd 2016.
